I first heard this song as performed by Carol Channing in the soundtrack to the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie". Apparently it was used as the tune for a Wheaties jingle in the '30s or '40s. The Goldwyn Girls quote just a bit of it in Vera-Ellen's production number in "Wonder Man". This is the first opportunity I've had to hear a contemporaneous recording. It's a very nice recording of the pop ragtime sort. Though I am unfamiliar with Agnes Lynn, she has a lot of personality in her performance.

Though details of Agnes Lynn certainly are sketchy (anyone?), this is the type of amazing song that's almost perfect for the time period, just entering the roaring 20's, just about to burst out of it's proper shell. Like think the show / Movie Chicago, and this is almost the type of song Velma would sing.

Again, not one hundred percent sure of who this Agnes Lynn person is, but I'd sure like to know more!
